Track Name: When I'm with you
All I need is a moment with you
Look in your eyes and see the real you
Never said it before, I’m saying it now
You are all I need, any way or any how
I was stunned by your beauty, can’t you see
I offer myself, you’re everything to me
In every world, across every lifetime
I’ve been searching for you, hoping to find
When I’m with you I can believe
When I’m with you it’s like I can’t breath
When I’m with you time stands still
I can’t move, I can’t speak, I am trapped until...
You make me believe, that is what you do
It’s like I can’t breath, when I am with you
My heart listens when you speak
I‘ve finally found you, the one I seek
When I’m with you I can believe
When I’m with you it’s like I can’t breath
When I’m with you time stands still
I can’t move, I can’t speak, I am trapped until...
When I’m with you I can believe
When I’m with you it’s like I can’t breath
When I’m with you time stands still
I can’t move, I can’t speak, I am trapped until...
All I need is a moment with you
When I’m with you
Track Name: The Forgotten Shore
You never hide
You never seek
You ride the tide
Of lost mystique
Waves ride you high
Then drop you low
Don’t question why
Just go with the flow
Treading water again
Just to stay alive
Through numbness and pain
You survive

This wasn’t my dream
This wasn’t my fear
I just can’t remember
How I ended up here
How far I’ve fallen
I just can’t say
I hear you calling
For me each day
I keep searching
Even though I’m lost
And I keep paying
No matter the cost
Can I stay awake
Can I escape
Can I break free
Can I change my fate

You can’t reach tomorrow
You’re feeling down
Is it you or your sorrow
You’re trying to drown
The bottles message
Is found at the bottom
In a whirlpool
All else is forgotten

Adrift at sea
Lost in Nevermore
Dream of being free
On the Forgotten Shore

You never hide
Now you seek
Riding the wave
You're at the peak
Her torch shows you
Which way to go
Now you can see
Now you know
Track Name: Dance with me
Whisper to me your unspoken truth.
Circle and meet me at the gate.
Tell me how many levels do we
unconsciously communicate?

I watch you tiptoe through ceremony.
You let me steal a taste of your dream.
We gather warmth in our embrace,
I smile as you laugh and beam.

Why do we hesitate at the moment?
Why do we pause when it gets real.
Why would we invest in the system,
when we can break free from the wheel.

The world becomes unfocused,
and the day is being drawn.
We shake off our disbelief,
then inhale with a yawn.

Why do we hesitate at the dream world?
Why do we pause at the abyss.
Why do we hesitate at understanding?
Why do we pause at surreal.
Why would we invest in the familiar,
when we can act how we feel.
Why would we invest in religion,
when we can follow our bliss.

Within this moment
we have each others' glance,
No words, No music,
and yet we dance.
Track Name: Hekate's Torch
Hecate your torch, eternal flame
Hecate your love, we will proclaim
Hecate you warm, our hearts again
Hecate you take, away our pain
We embrace our freedom
and we make our choice
We are bold at the crossroads
when we hear your voice
We see your signs
in every liminal place
Giving us strength
against the fears we face
Hecate your torch, eternal flame
Hecate your love, we will proclaim
Hecate you warm, our hearts again
Hecate you take, away our pain
enlightening the shadow
and all things between
illumination and balance
let us see the unseen
Your fire kisses shackles away
You are the warrior and healer
bringing justice with grace
Upon this journey
You dry our tears
the light of your torch
Dispels all our fears
Hecate's torch burns brightly
in our heart
Lighting our path
through danger and dark
Hecate your torch, eternal flame
Hecate your love, we will proclaim
Hecate you warm, our hearts again
Hecate you take, away our pain
Track Name: Chains
Forced to embrace
slowly poisoned
ever surrounded by
sickness and death

Looking closer
seeing the answers
are all illusions
the truth I held dear
was folly
and reality was more
akin to my dreams
born into a world
built upon lies... upon lies

remember to smile because
someone out there
has it so much worse
we carry our own chains
and never complain
because the cage we are in
is painted gold
No one escapes
No one fights back

forced to embrace
slowly poisoned
ever surrounded by
sickness and death

but this is the place
you call home
and while you are here
you are not alone
if you can't be free
try to be
loving and loved

Looking closer

Track Name: Sacred and Profane
Reflecting on the sanctity of all my beliefs,
do I enshrine and place them on a pedestal?
Do I embrace and imitate,
idolize and epitomize, consume and sacrifice?
Can I transcend and forgive?
Open my heart, allow the possibilities
of inner transformation to guide me?

I can choose to feel this way,
be it good or bad…
I can choose whom I will be with
in this moment,
and they need to choose me?
Where I go from here, depends on the choices
I make, you make, we make
I make, you make, we make
I make, you make, we make…they make,

Stop counting the cost and feeling lost.
It's all about choices.

Do I follow my heart
Listen to my intuition
Analyze my situation
Fall into inaction
Should I fight or flee or just be
I feel trapped between sacred and profane
Do I embrace and imitate
Consume and sacrifice

Where I go from here, depends on the choices
I make, you make, we make
I make, you make, we make
I make, you make, we make…they make,

Then again that's how I ended up here.
Track Name: Quando Estou Contigo
Sonho um dia em te encontrar
Olhar nos seus olhos... Ter você
Se eu nunca te disse, agora eu vou falar
Você é meu mundo, minha jóia ancestral

Eu me entrego a você, dou todo o meu amor
Em cada instante e até em outra dimensão
A sua beleza me enfeitiçou
Chamei por você e você me encontrou

Quando estou contigo eu me rendo
Quando estou contigo sinto que perco o ar
Quando estou contigo o tempo pára
Fico muda, perco o tom, só quero te amar!

Você me faz crer que tudo vai mudar
Quando estou com você, sinto o mundo rodar
Seu jeito me encanta, me faz delirar
Quando estou com você, ouço o amor me chamar

Quando estou contigo eu me rendo
Quando estou contigo sinto que perco o ar
Quando estou contigo o tempo pára
Fico muda, perco o tom, só quero te amar!

Quando estou contigo eu me rendo
Quando estou contigo sinto que perco o ar
Quando estou contigo o tempo pára
Fico muda, perco o tom, só quero te amar!

Sonho um dia em te encontrar... Huummm...
Quando estou contigo....
Track Name: The Next Wave
Quietly resting the world becomes mute
With a deep breath I dive towards my pursuit
Connections are lost my values start to bleed
Submerged in my ocean until the soil consumes the seed
In this vastness of myself how do I become
Igniting ephemeral cycles I see my kingdom
Fearless I fly painting the sky
The further I go the higher I fly

the further I go the higher I fly

The rushing tide, I was unaware,
trying to label a taste in the air.
Is it too late? How will I know?
Will I be caught in the undertow?
Pulled out to sea, lose sight of the shore,
an uneasy sensation, I’ve been here before.
Changing directions, riding the waves,
there must be a way out of this maze.
The moon and stars, the clouds and sun,
lose count of the days since I am undone.

Professing the depth of my love with no judgements
No more waiting I am married to each of the elements
Standing on the shore near the cave
I open all of myself for the next wave

the further I go the higher I fly

The rushing tide, I was unaware,
trying to label a taste in the air.
Is it too late? How will I know?
Will I be caught in the undertow?
Pulled out to sea, lose sight of the shore,
an uneasy sensation, I’ve been here before.
Changing directions, riding the waves,
there must be a way out of this maze.
The moon and stars, the clouds and sun,
lose count of the days since I am undone.
Track Name: Playground
Don’t be afraid I told myself.
It’s Okay to fall in love.
Learn to trust, don’t set your
expectations too high.
Everyone makes mistakes,
I’ve made my share of them.

Gather some perspective
Balance myself out
Searching for the truth
Is what I’m all about

I just need this moment
Where everything is clear
Let old things fall away
Let new things appear

Our hearts are a playground
Where we both run free
All at once I know for sure
It’s always you and me

Finding our perspective
We just balance out
Gathering our truth
We know what it’s all about

If we only have this moment
I want you to be near
To share all the love we have
Then everything is clear

Our hearts are a playground
Where we both run free
All at once I know for sure
It’s always you and me

Our hearts are a playground
Where we both run free
All at once I know for sure
It’s always you and me

Our hearts are a playground
Where we both run free
All at once I know for sure
It’s always you and me

Our hearts are a playground
Where we both run free
All at once I know for sure
It’s always you and me
Track Name: Playground Portuguese
Não tenha medo,
eu disse a mim mesmo.
Tudo bem se apaixonar.
Aprender a confiar, não tenha
Expectativas muito altas.
Todo mundo comete erros,
Eu já cometi os meus

Buscando alguma chance de me equilibrar
O som da sua voz é paz que me faz chorar
Eu só quero este instante pra estar com você
Deixar o ontem envelhecer e o hoje acontecer
Nosso amor é um playground...É luz, é cor, poesia
E agora eu sei que me faz bem toda essa magia
Buscando alguma chance, seguimos nossa estrada
Mantendo enfim o que é real...Verdade iluminada
E se for só mais um sonho, que seja infinito
E o nosso amor assim será pra sempre o mais bonito.
Nosso amor é um playground...É luz, é cor, poesia
E agora eu sei que me faz bem toda essa magia
